Overview

The most used version is 6.9.0.16, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. The program adds a toolbar to Microsoft Internet Explorer. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version).

Typically most users end up uninstalling this just after a few days.

The software installer includes 19 files and is usually about 3.93 MB (4,125,509 bytes).
